Democratic Congressman Ruben Hinojosa Declares Bankruptcy

Texas Democratic Congressman Ruben Hinojosa - a member of the House Financial Services Committee - filed for personal bankruptcy late last year. The Associated Press and Politico, citing court documents and a statement, reported that Hinojosa attributes his financial problems to a loan he guaranteed for his family's meat company. "I have done everything humanly possible to avoid filing for bankruptcy protection to no avail," Hinojosa said in the statement. "The bank debt of H&H [Meat Products Co.] was more than I could handle financially." He said he was seeking to exit bankruptcy ...

South Texas Literacy Coalition: 8th Annual Historias De La Vida Celebration
I am honored to have received the 2016 Lifetime Literacy Champion Honoree award from the South Texas Literacy Coalition last night at its 8th Annual Historias De La Vida Celebration, which promotes the future of literacy triumphs of children and students in South Texas. A big thank you to the Texas Library Association for also honoring me last night with the 2016 Outstanding Services to Libraries Award for my advocacy efforts and support for libraries, literacy, and learning. I applaud TLA and STLC for their continued outreach efforts to engage and enrich our community through partnerships that lead to a more literate population. In fact, this past year, these STLC partnerships helped distribute over 200,000 books, reaching over 135,000 children, and over 32,000 parents in the communities they serve. This is a powerful step in the right direction towards improving literacy in South Texas.  
Building RGV infrastructure up
  Building up the Rio Grande Valley’s infrastructure may be among our region’s single greatest imperatives to keeping pace with our exploding population growth and booming economy. The solution is expensive. However, it is manageable as long as we maintain a firm commitment to free trade, sufficient funding at each level of government and a long-term strategy envisioning the future of the Rio Grande Valley as the epicenter of global innovation in science and technology. As a business owner, congressman and Rio Grande Valley resident, I have seen the positive impacts that open, free and fair trade has had on Texas and our region. Its proven success has transformed our border economy and it has also been a contributing factor toward post-recession economic recovery. The facilitation of trade through strong infrastructure investments has boosted economic development, reduced our unemployment rate from double digits to single-digits, and provided greater paying opportunities for all.
Pharr-Reynosa International Bridge "Start of the Produce Season" Celebration
Today was the annual celebration to kick-off the “Start of the Produce Season” at the Pharr-Reynosa International Bridge. I am proud of Bret Erickson, President and CEO of Texas International Produce Association, Luis Bazan, Director of Pharr Bridge, Texas State Representative Bobby Guerra, Mayor Maki Esther Ortiz of Reynosa, City Manager Juan Guerra of Pharr, Ing. Rosendo Hernandez Robles, Jefe de Puentes of Reynosa, and all others involved with cross-border produce trade for ensuring that the Pharr Bridge remains an efficient and highly profitable land port for our local economy. Innovative infrastructure such as the addition of Pharr’s cold storage facility (as I noted in my opinion editorial in The McAllen Monitor this Sunday), has helped the Pharr Bridge become the largest land port importer of fruits and vegetables in the nation. Some of the more notable produce that crosses the Pharr Bridge each day includes avocados, raspberries, and tomatoes.   The Texas A&M Cent
